In 2016, APM College of Business and Communication and Billy Blue College of Design were proud to announce they were joining Think Education’s sister school, Torrens University Australia.

With over 180 years of combined history, Think colleges share a common heritage. At the core of Think’s approach is our four promises; everyone has a job they love, everyone chooses how and where they learn, everyone has an edge and everyone can change their world.
At Think Education, we challenge the myopic and stereotypical thinking of the traditional education system, and rebuild it to suit students and their futures. We believe in delivering an experience that empowers resilience, confidence and curiosity, where heads and hearts are aligned, instinctively bringing our students’ talents and abilities to life. We place equal value on theory and practice. We ensure our students are trained in the real world skills they need for success. And we give everyone a platform to change their world.
The education revolution starts here.
